God of Abraham

God of Abraham is one of many names for God that require us to reflect on the relationship that God had with an individual or group. God called Abraham out of his home and family to form a new people in the Promised Land. Abraham obeyed and became the father of faith. Abraham’s greatest test was trusting God to give him a son even though Abraham was too old. The name, God of Abraham, should inspire faith in us and prepare us for a lifelong relationship with God.
